Secrets to SOLIDWORKS Performance - Individual license

Stop waiting for your files to load - Be in control of the performance of your SOLIDWORKS models.

The speed of your models directly depends on how you model them.

I have read every article and watched every video on SOLIDWORKS performance I could find so you don't have to.

After 200 hours, I have condensed everything down into a 127-page ebook, written in the style of my blog posts. I then hired an editor to improve my writing and a designer to make everything look awesome.

Who is this for?

  • Engineers who are sick of waiting for their models to load, rebuild and save.

  • SOLIDWORKS API developers that want to make their add-ins and macros run faster.

  • Team leaders that want to improve their team spirit.

This product version is for a single user. Please check out the Team License to get multiple copies with a nice discount. I have worked hard on this book, so please get the version that is right for you. I cannot prevent you from sharing the ebook with your colleagues, so I'm trusting you to do the right thing. Thank you in advance.

About me

My name is Peter Brinkhuis and I'm the owner of CAD Booster, where I develop add-ins for SOLIDWORKS. I automate 2D drawings with Drew and make working with fasteners fun with Lightning.

I'm a mechanical engineer by trade and have been using SOLIDWORKS since my first internship 15 years ago. In my engineering days, I gathered a lot of random tips to improve SOLIDWORKS performance. But I never really understood what determined the speed of my models.

So last year, I set out to properly research the topic and to write down everything I could find about performance and SOLIDWORKS. I am happy to present my results to you now.
